Still not sure what happened there.
I've run that rapid twice in my life, both times backwards and this time with one oar.
Maybe I should go right next time.
Helen said I was pale coming out the bottom.
The bloody mary helped.

It was a real treat to have a guide on this expedition. Little tidbits like Snoopy Rock and where to fill up water halfway through are things I could not have provided. Mr. Dibs, Mr. Toaster, and Kesswer the furkid were great company for my wife and me, our spawn, and my mother.

The nostril and nipple crises were good learning experiences. I now feel more confident with the removal trick.

El launcho.

The impetus of this trip was my mom's birthday. Her most favorite thing is overnights on the river.

He was really excited to poop in a box.
Alas, it was too tippy for him so he had his own grover.

Image

Image

S'mores, mandatory gear.

Image

Mr. Toaster.

Image

Image

She's 68.

Image

Limber.

Image

Hog's camp.
Limited afternoon shade, but a good camp.

Image

We need some of these for #FLYFISHING!!!!11!! #LONGROD #WHIPPYSTICK #HAUNTEDBYWATERS

Image

Chillin.

Image

Relaxin

Image

Image

Down in the river, on top of the world.

Thanks again, Dibs.
Looking forward to doing the whole thing.
